Correct Dental Problems With Veneers

It's hard to smile when you feel self-conscious about your teeth. Whether they are badly stained, misshapen, crooked, or broken, it affects your self-esteem.

Keep reading to learn how veneers correct dental problems.

What are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin tooth-shaped coverings that correct a variety of dental problems. The dentist attaches the veneers to the front surface of your teeth. Typically made from porcelain or resin composite materials, veneers are a smart choice for people who want to improve their appearance.

Problems Veneers Can Correct
Dental veneers can correct several kinds of dental problems. They are great for people who have:

  • Severely discolored teeth
  • Abnormally shaped teeth
  • Extremely small teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Missing teeth

If you decide to get dental veneers, your dentist makes a mold or impression of your teeth and sends it to a dental lab. The lab uses the mold to create your new dental veneers. Once your dentist receives the veneers, he or she professionally cleans your teeth to prepare them for the veneer installation. Using a special grinding tool, the dentist roughens the surface of your teeth. This makes it easier for the veneers to adhere to your teeth. The dentist uses a special dental cement to permanently attach the veneers to your teeth. Porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years.
